QUINCHE-RAMIREZ, Manuel-Fernando. Judicial security in the face of final decisions: the tutela against decisions. Estud. Socio-Juríd [online]. 2010, vol.12, n.1, pp. 99-126. ISSN 0124-0579.
This article works with the themes of judicial security and the tutela action against decisions. It seeks to demonstrate two things: the first is that judicial insecurity that seems to occur in Colombia does not have its origins in the decisions emanating from the tutela deciding judges, but in the irregular normative practices of the Congress and the Presidency of the Republic. The second is to examine decisions issued by local judges, from the point of view of the practices of the Inter-American System for the Protection of Human Rights, of which Colombia forms a part and to which, as a result, conforms itself to the American Convention on Human Rights.
